Choosing the Right Hinges for a Hidden Door

Hidden doors have fascinated people throughout history with their distinction, aesthetic appeal, and space-saving capabilities. They remain popular today, featured in viral social media videos and large commercial spaces, while inspiring a sought-after aesthetic.

Concealed doors can be created using any standard door. The real magic is in the hinges and frame, which must be specially designed; you can forgo molding, setting the door flush with the wall, or using textures and patterns to hide it.

In 1992, Sugatsune introduced the adjustable concealed door hinge. Since then, Sugatsune developed an innovative concealed hinge lineup, offering numerous solutions to create the perfect hidden door that everyone will enjoy!

The lineup includes features such as:

  • 3-Way Adjustability
  • Lift-Off, Hinge Separation
  • Temporary Hold
  • Surface Mount
  • 304-Stainless Steel
  • Frame and Hinge System
